Whew. Now that I've finished up the 12/5/81, I've moved on to the JGB 2/5/81. So sweet. Thanks again for pointing me in this direction. The day is flying by (The Catfish John alone is worth the trip).

81 is indeed one of the stronger years out there. This year (especially the spring run) has some of my all time favorites:

3/9/81 MSG
3/12/81 Boston Garden
3/13/81 Utica
5/1/81 Hampton
5/5/81 Glenns Falls
5/6/81 Nassau
5/16/81 Barton Hall (one of my all-time favorites here as I've babbled on about several times in the past)
9/12/81 Greek (immense second set)
9/25/81 Lehigh (another favorite) - also a great JGB show from that year at the same venue 2/5/81 I grabbed off the Arrow
and
12/5/81 Market Square Arena

Another big bonus is that there are many, many fine AUD's availble from that year if one is partial to a crispy AUD from time to time.

So many shows, so little time.

PS. Because of this thread I have started up the Market Square show and am back in my "happy place". Thanks. This show is primarily a very sweet SBD, but there is also some extrememly crispy AUD mixed in. If anyone has the entire show from this AUD source, I'd love to see it uploaded here. Sounds fantastic (see the Ramble on Rose for a great example)

Update 1: Birdsong is a work of art and the LIG set closer is INTENSE
Update 2: Shakedown is a churning urn of burning funk
Update 3: The Wheel mystifies and the Stella soars

12/5/81 -- nice setlist.... it's such a simple tune really, but that 2nd set Big RR Blues jumps off the screen...

Hey!? When did you change your name? Did you change it to what we all refer to you as?

Cool.

One of those occasions where the show more than lives up to the set list.

Dude! the first two and a half minutes of Minglewood from 9-25 Stabler are sublime! Personally, I love it when the sound is on one instrument - here is Brent.

Hi SDH,

I agree with your calls on 1981. My two favorites are 5/1 (AUD) and 12/5 (SBD).

Give 10/12 a listen. A huge 1st set (one of my favorites), and a rippin Estimated > GDTRFB in the 2nd.

I curious if my "Glow-in-the-Dark" T-shirts still work from that era. The Oakland Run from the end of '81 was a good one.

Great news ! I've been sampling the delights of the Europe tours from that year, and looking forward to hearing more from 1981, particularly JGB as that will be new territory.

This show in particular remains a long term favourite even though it's not the greatest sound quality. http://www.archive.org/details/gd81-10-19.sbd.macdonald.7914.sbeok.shnf

Come on Rhino, dig out a clean copy and put it out !
